Then we went on a couple of temple runs. The first was Bedugal. It's a garden with the actual temple parts on a lake. There were tons of tourists - some of the Indonesian ones asked for pictures together. Lots of frolicking was done in the garden section. Oh and shopping - outside were tons of souvenir areas.
|Frolicking includes lots of picture taking if you didn't know|
The second was Tanah Lot. It's a temple built on the very fringes of the beach in the water. During low tide you can go and walk next to the temple bits but during hig tide the water makes it impossible. We went during evening so we were able to walk and get on top of the rocks - the water still reached us though. It was incredibly beautiful especially during sunset. I could only imagine building it.
After many hours of lounging and adventuring on this beach we headed out to buy souvenirs! When I finally came out of my shopping daze I was astonished to see the amount of stuff I had gotten. It's not all for me though so I guess I am a generous shopper ...? Then we went on a driving tour of Bali. We saw some amazing hotels and some of the most popular clubs and shopping areas. Our driver was very informative. He had driven the prime minister of Thailand when Obama came to Bali and Julie Roberts when she was filming Eat, Pray, Love. He was also incredibly nice. We watched the sunset on a beach in Seminyak. Very different feel - a lot longer and less cliffy than Dreamland. The sand was also darker and finer - which reflected the colors of the sky really well. Dinner was Indian food there are great Indian restaurants in Bali just saying.
The next day we packed up and got on our plane back to Jawa and for me Jakarta. Bali was a most amazing trip and I would say absolutely go ther if you have the chance. As my host mom says 'You don't know really Indonesia until you go to Bali.' So yaaaaaay for Bali and host moms who take you there <3
